Snapchat: Forgot Password and Need Help Accessing Your Account? We Have You Covered

If you have accounts on websites and apps, you know how frustrating passwords can be. Every website and app has different specific requirements for your password, but you probably recognize many of the rules. Passwords must contain a certain number of characters. They need to have certain combinations of letters and numbers, and even symbols. You may have to change your password every 90 days, but you can't use a previous password or anything similar to your current password, your username, your email address, or anything you'll remember.

If you happen to put in the wrong password one too many times, you may be temporarily locked out of your account. Some companies will even permanently lock or freeze your account unless you go through a tedious process to confirm your ownership of your account. If you , DoNotPay can help.
